there is another kind of house, and while this kind may have provided a stage for death, violence and insanity from humans, those acts were symptoms, not the cause. some houses just reject humanity.
the house is neither a machine or a work of art. the house is a living organism, not just an arrangement of dead materials: it lives as a whole and in the details. the house is the skin of the human body.
your home is an extension of yourself, as much as you will let it be, and the place and the people and the things that form and fill it are as much a part of you as your blood. as your bile. as your tears.

strange house we must keep and fill.
house that eats and pleads and kills.
house on legs. house on fire. house infested
with desire. haunted house. lonely house.
house of trick and suck and shrug.
give-it-to-me house. i-need-you-baby house.
house whose rooms are pooled with blood.
house with hands. house of guilt. house
that other houses built. house of lies
and pride and bone. house afraid to be alone.
house like an engine that churns and stalls.
house with skin and hair for walls.
house the seasons singe and douse.
house that believes it is not a house.
ONE need not be a chamber to be haunted,
one need not be a house;
the brain has corridors surpassing
far safer, of a midnight meeting
than an interior confronting
that whiter host.
